  Giants | Jon Beason injures knee    Sat Aug 22, 09:29 PM

New York Giants LB Jon Beason (knee) left a preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars Saturday, Aug. 22, with a sprained left knee and will not return.

Footballguys view: Just what the Giants need - another injury. It's looking grim for Big Blue with all these injuries and the team had issues last season when Beason was out early in the season. For as much money as they pay him, you'd think he might supplement his workout with some bionic limbs. This defense is in serious trouble.

  Eagles | Kiko Alonso returning    Tue Aug 18, 11:52 AM

Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (concussion) will be eased into practice Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Footballguys view: It sounds like he made it through the protocol without any reason to worry about this being an especially severe concussion. As long as there is no recurrence of symptoms in the next few days, there's no reason to worry about this with respect to Alonso's IDP stock. We'll keep him on the list of players to monitor in season for a repeat concussion.

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso (concussion) is going through the concussion protocol but has not passed all of the tests at this point.

'I'm built for stuff like this,' Tulloch said. 'So, just getting back out here again, like I said, I'm back to me being me. I'm able to run around and make plays.'

Footballguys view: The Lions will take it a little easy on him this preseason and it's not like Tulloch is in his first year. You can bet the nine-year veteran will not be celebrating sacks again this year, however.

  Eagles | DeMeco Ryans not at full speed    Tue Aug 4, 09:54 AM

Philadelphia Eagles LB DeMeco Ryans (Achilles') is not quite 100% in his return from a torn Achilles'. 'I still have a little ways to go,' Ryans said. 'Still need to gain a little bit of strength (in the foot), a little bit of explosiveness. Once I do that, I'll be ready.'

Footballguys view: After the Kiko Alonso trade, the Eagles were left with three strong ILBs, including Mychal Kendricks. Hopefully there is an odd man out for IDP leagues, because if the three split the two roles, it will hurt all of their values.

  49ers | NaVorro Bowman will practice    Sat Aug 1, 10:07 AM

San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman (knee) passed his conditioning test Friday, July 31, and will be able to participate in practice Aug. 1. Bowman will wear a brace during practice to protect his surgically repaired knee.

Footballguys view: Bowman missed all of the 2014 season due to multiple knee problems, so the team will have to be incredibly cautious with him as he returns to the field this year. He's wearing a bulky brace, and earlier reports indicate that the knee is inconsistent in how it feels. It would be a shock to see him return to All-Pro form his first year back.

  Chargers | Donald Butler has high expectations    Wed Jul 29, 09:05 PM

San Diego Chargers LB Donald Butler said 2014 fell far short of his expectations, Wednesday, July 29. 'It wasn't good enough,' Butler said. 'I'm my own worst critic, so it wasn't good enough hands down. But I'm looking forward to this year. I'm back healthy and ready to go,' said Butler. The veteran linebacker was found to be in great shape when Chargers players reported to training camp.

Footballguys view: The Chargers are likely to make a playoff run this year. They could push the Broncos for the AFC West title, and they're certainly a team to watch in that conference.

  Chargers | Denzel Perryman missed time    Mon Jul 27, 10:46 AM

San Diego Chargers LB Denzel Perryman (hamstring) missed practices this offseason due to a hamstring strain.

Footballguys view: The rookie linebacker can be an impact player at the pro level. Perryman does a good job of sniffing out plays as they unfold in front of him, and he arrives at the ball-carrier with natural violence. The Chargers will monitor him closely during training camp to prevent any aggravation of the earlier strain.
